How to remove an audio track from an MKV with Movavi Video Editor
Step 1. Install the Movavi app
Starting the process is as easy as downloading Movavi onto your device. Once you have the setup file, you’ll be guided through the installation process with prompts.
Step 2. Adding video
Once you open the installed program, you’ll see a dashboard with an Add Files option. Click on it and navigate to the MKV file you want to extract the audio from. Then, add this video to the project’s timeline.
Step 3. Removing the audio
On the dashboard’s timeline, you’ll see different tracks of the MKV file, such as the audio and video, displayed one below the other. Movavi has a shortcut to remove any of these items, so simply select the unwanted track and press Delete.
Step 4. Adding audio (optional)
This step is optional and will depend on your purpose for this editing. If you removed audio in order to replace it with something else, Movavi makes it easy to insert it. Use the Add Files option and navigate to the appropriate track on your computer. When selected, Movavi will add it to the timeline. Alternatively, you can use Movavi’s Sounds option, which offers a collection of built-in audio options.
If the new track is shorter than the video track, you can duplicate it or simply add another audio file. If it’s longer than the video, simply drag the right end of the track to the left side until both tracks – audio and video – are equal.
Step 5. Save your project
To save your work, you use the Export option. This will open up a window with multiple tabs, giving you a variety of formats to save your project in, such as MP4. Select your option, and then you can press Start.
You also have different options in terms of how the file will be used after saving. Do you simply want to save it to your hard drive? Or should it be prepared for online uploading, or perhaps you need it exported for use on your mobile device? Movavi has all these options built-in, automating many tasks and simplifying your workflow.
